Neural retina and MerTK-independent apical polarity of alphavbeta5 integrin receptors in the retinal pigment epithelium.

Abstract

The apical plasma membrane domain of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells in the eye faces the outer segment portions of rods and cones and the interphotoreceptor matrix in the subretinal space. Two important receptor-mediated interactions between the apical surface of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and adjacent photoreceptors are adhesion ensuring… (More)
